Yay! Flew the flag today...
...or rather, wore the jersey.
First day of the year where I could ditch the coat. Ditched the tights and booties too.
Shorts and my heavier kneewarmers on the bottom, armwarmers, a long-sleeved wicking t-shirt and my 50+ jersey on top. The weather finally went 50+ today as well. The afternoon high was 53°F.
I'd planned one last ride around the bay before they open the swing bridge for marine traffic until November (thereby closing it to wheeled traffic, except maybe Evil Kinevil), but the wind off the lake had a heck of a bite. I was damned if I was going to turn around for a jacket and tights.
Instead, I headed inland to the hills of horse country. Rode just shy of 30 miles, my longest single ride to date this year. My face feels funny too, like got either a little sun or a little windburn.
Rain tomorrow, snow Monday and Tuesday, but sunny and mild later in the week, with 60s (gasp!) for the following week.
Spring just may have reached the North Coast.
